Improve Your Dog’s Behavior Too…

Growing up, I had an undeniable passion for animal behavior and training. Which lead me to pursue behavior medicine and dog sports, specifically dog agility competition.

Now, I’ve always had high-energy, strong-willed dogs (several of them in fact). So I know exactly what it’s like to deal with dogs that have a tendency to misbehave, not listen… much less obey, and can be anti-social or aggressive.

Because of my love for animals I also became a veterinarian. There was just one problem… while I was able to treat their medical or health issues, many dogs were still at risk of being euthanized due to behavior problems.

And after years of seeing dog owners struggle with common behavior problems that are easily resolved with proper training, I couldn’t take it anymore – I had to help.

So I left clinical practice to focus on behavior medicine and professional dog training so I could help others, like you, improve your dog’s behavior too.

The Most Common Dog Training Mistakes

(You’re Probably Making Them Now)

Mistake 1

Training Before You Really Understand (Or Can Communicate With) Your Dog

Your dog is always trying to communicate with you, but their communication can be subtle just like when you narrow your eyes and crinkle your nose. Dogs use body language, movement, smells and some sound to communicate. And most people miss important messages their dog is trying to tell to them… which results in behavior problems that could’ve been avoided entirely.

At the same time, when you want to tell your dog something. You must be able to communicate with your dog in a way they understand too. So your dog knows exactly what you want them to do. Can you do that? If not, your dog will always struggle to learn the behaviors the way you want them to.

Mistake 2

Training Before Your Dog Fully Trusts You

When you tell your dog to do something, it’s perfectly normal to expect them to follow your directions, that is… if your dog actually trusts you. Dog’s are incredibly sensitive to your verbal and nonverbal messages. If you’ve confused your dog in the past by tolerating a behavior at one time but then not at another time, or even “lied” to them by asking for a behavior and when they do it, you still aren’t happy, they won’t trust you. Which will cause them to question every direction you give them.

Do you know how to gain the trust of your dog so they always listen and follow your directions? If not, your dog will always resist improving their behavior for you, and may even pick up a few new unwanted behaviors along the way.

Mistake 3

Using Harmful or Intimidating Training Techniques

Yelling, prong collars, shock collars, kicking your dog, shaking, grabbing, collar snapping, etc. No matter how “gently” you think you are being, these approaches are designed to psychologically and emotionally intimidate your dog into submission. And in many cases, they physically hurt your dog.

This creates a fear based relationship that focuses on teaching your dog What Not To Do, instead of training them what you want them To Do. Big difference. Plus, research shows that training dogs with intimidation is more likely to cause more behavior problems including separation anxiety and aggression.

When you don’t understand your dog, and your dog doesn’t understand you – it undermines trust, and deteriorates the bond and connection you need to improve their behavior.
